Human Validation Process
My approach, the human process validation model is based on the premise that all we manifest at any point in time represents what we have learned, consciously, implicitly, cellularly. Our behavior reflects what we have learned. Learning is the basis of behavior, we need to have new learning. To accomplish new learning, we need a motive, a purpose, a nurturing context, and a trust in something from the outside to help us.
-Virginia Satir
View of Family Dynamics
* All human beings have the ability to grow from an
sense of strength, motive, and reality
* Patterns are repeated from development
* Change occurs through a process of growth
* Content gives the context of change
* All humans have self worth inside
* People are equal in value but different and unique
in their combination of human sameness and
Human Validation Process
* Family sculpting
- To increase family members'
awareness of how they function
and how they're viewed by others
in the family
* Family reconstruction
- Enables clients to explore significant
events in three generations of family life
- Build family reconstructions around person's
family maps, family life-fact chronology, wheel
of influence
- Reenact and observe significant life events
- Formulate a more realistic picture of parents
- Interrupt old entrenched patterns in favor of
more useful processes
* Parts parties
- Each person is a system of
positive and negative parts to help
individuals acknowledge and integrate
multiple aspects of self
Treatment Goals
* Open communications
- Individuals are allowed to honestly
report their perceptions (being congruent)
* Enhancement of self-esteem
- Family decisions are based on individual needs
* Encouragement of growth
- Differences are acknowledged and seen
as opportunities for growth
* Transform extreme rules into useful and
functional rules
Interventions, Assessment Measures,
and Strengths/Weaknesses
RECIPE (six ingredients for change)
- Resourcefulness
- Empowerment
- Congruence
- Inner system
- Pattern
- Externalization
Intervention = Intuition
Assessment Measures
* Family maps (similar to a Genogram)
* Family life-fact chronology (a listing of a family's three
generation history)
* Drama (reenactment in a group counseling experience)
* Reframing
* Family sculpting (may be used to increase family members'
awareness of how they function and how they are viewed
by others in the system)
Strengths, Weaknesses, and Critiques
* Depends on rapport, relationship,
and the individual (+,-)
* Self-discovery (+,-)
* "My approach...is based on the premise
that all we manifest at any point in time
represents what we have learned."
- Virginia Satir
* Change of behavior = learning (+)
More studies are needed to evaluate the Satir model.
However, this research, in addition to her successful work
during her career, is a good indication of the effectiveness
of the Human Validation Process.
Joan Winter (1993) compared the family therapies approaches
of Bowen, Haley, and Satir for her doctoral dissertation:
- Satir's system's drop out rate was 5.1%, Bowen 36.5%, and
Haley 60.9%
- Satir therapists' success for engaging clients was 93.7%,
Bowen 36.5%, and Haley 67.6%
- Satir therapists' rate for completion of treatment was
88.8%, Bowen 57.9%, and Haley 26.5%
- Satir model rated higher in satisfaction for therapist and
treatment outcomes than Haley and Bowen models
Were you listening?
Who is the theorist of the Family Validation Process model?

What are some of the assumptions of the Family Validation Process?

What is a "parts party"?

Can you remember what any of the letters from the R.E.C.I.P.E. acronym stands for?

How would you define the Human Validation Process?
